I decided to take my own challenge. Not that I’d ever acted in a play. Nor had I ever written a bona fide play.

I decided to take my own challenge. I knew Break a leg but was vague about downstage left. Perhaps my innocence shows in Zap’s technical challenges. Then again, without that daring, nothing would ever get written, in any genre.

Grade 9 Up–For practiced young thespians bored with chestnuts like Grease or Romeo and Juliet, Fleischman dishes up a hilarious pastiche that mixes speeches from Shakespeare with original scenes done in the styles of Chekhov, Tennessee Williams, Agatha Christie, Samuel Beckett, and Neil Simon–plus the occasional babble from Marsha, a neurotic performance artist.

I decided to give them something ne. His Newbery Medal-winning JOYFUL NOISE: POEMS FOR TWO VOICES is an invitation to verbal duets, while BIG TALK, its sequel, gives us poems for quartets.

Paul Fleischman is a successful author who wanted to try writing something different. He noticed that high schools typically put on the same plays again and again, so he wrote a new one. This one mixes seven different styles of play - Agatha Christie, Shakespeare, Chekhov, avant-garde, Tennessee Williams, Neil Simon, and performance art.

Actors are in period costume. When switching from one play to another, a loud electronic sound is heard, followed by a brief blackout, during which the actors quickly enter and exit.

I highly recommend reading or seeing the works mentioned in the foreword or others in the genre. It’s crucial to know the conventions that are colliding. It’s just as important to remain true to them despite the growing chaos onstage. None of the laughter should be coming from the cast

Cue the lights for Zap, a nonstop farce that juxtaposes seven different plays - performed simultaneously - with a comic genius reminiscent of masters from Monty Python to the Marx Brothers.

Great Play

great fun; it would be a blast to stage it!

This started out as a really strong, solid play for me. It is essentially seven plays in one, where the "audience" gets to choose which one they wish to watch by "zapping" or "changing the channel" with remotes provided. As the plays go on they slowly disintegrate and start to impede on each other. While this is amusing, I actually became invested in the plays and sort of wish we could have seen them acted out to fruition. I imagine seeing the play in real life would be hilarious and completely on point.
